Phoenix Family Faces Astronomical Medical Costs After Head-On Collision with Truck

Recently, a news report provided an update on a devastating Phoenix car accident between a truck and a sedan carrying a couple and their daughter. The couple was waiting to make a left turn after picking up their daughter from a relative’s home. The child was in a child-safety seat in between the parents in the front seat. When the light turned yellow, and traffic began to wane, the man started to make his turn. The man’s girlfriend screamed when she looked up from her phone and noticed a truck barreling towards them. The driver did not have time to stop, and the truck collided into their vehicle.

The couple and their child were all taken to a local hospital, and the woman and her daughter remained unconscious for several days. After the woman awoke from her coma, she discovered that her daughter was at a different hospital and remained in a medically induced coma. Fortunately, tests revealed that the daughter did not suffer any permanent brain damage; however, she remained in a sedative state as her cerebral cortex healed. Despite support from their family and the community, the family is facing a long road of psychological and physical therapy. The woman revealed that although she is grateful for the medical benefits her employer provides, the family is facing astronomical medical bills.

Many accident victims rely on medical insurance and car insurance coverage to help them pay the significant medical costs often associated with serious car accidents. Car accident victims may face payments related to emergency treatment, vehicle storage or repair, surgeries, hospital stays, physical rehabilitation, prescription and copays, psychological treatment, and lost wages.

Phoenix car accident victims regularly face substantial hurdles when trying to recover compensation from an at-fault driver or their insurance company. These difficulties can prolong recovery and cause innocent injury victims to suffer potentially long-term physical and financial repercussions. At-fault drivers will delay settling claims, arguing that they were not responsible for the accident or that they do not have the funds to cover the damages. Similarly, insurance companies may unduly delay or wrongfully deny claims. These delays result in accident victims worrying about how to survive while tending to their and their loved ones’ medical needs. To recover compensation, Arizona injury victims should consider filing a personal injury lawsuit against the liable party to recover for their losses.
